Alcatel-Lucent to Integrate CASSIS Trusted Service Manager for Mobile Wallets

Alcatel-Lucent will integrate CASSIS International's Trusted Service Manager (TSM) with its own mobile payment and marketing offering. The combination will enable mobile network operators (MNOs) to provide a secure mobile application warehouse for payment, ticketing, loyalty and other applications by allowing consumers to use their mobile phones as a wallet at the point of sale.


The CASSIS Trusted Service Manager distributes, provisions and activates the applications and services of the service providers, and is considered the middle man between MNOs and third party service providers. This allows a mobile phone to act like a credit card, transport card or loyalty card. MNOs can leverage the relationship and services of the TSM to collaborate with other industry service providers and rapidly create new services for their customers, independent of handset and secure element makers, and thereby creating new revenue streams.


"This partnership completes our turnkey mobile payment and marketing offering for mobile operators and NFC consortia," said Anthony Belpaire, General Manager Alcatel-Lucent Mobile Wallet Service. "The combination of CASSIS' unique expertise on TSM with Alcatel-Lucent's Mobile Wallet Service offering, worldwide presence and integration expertise creates a unique market proposition. With this offering, we can enable our mobile carrier customers to provide a kind of "SIM app store" so payment, ticketing and lots of 3rd party applications can be provided to any NFC handset into the hands of the carriers' customers."


CASSIS currently supports all of Visa's major NFC project launches in the Asia Pacific region and is a key member of Visa's International Mobile Payment Platform Consortium for mobile payments and services.
